"Fatal Distraction" had a distracting reader, so perhaps the story reads better in print. Its predictable plot had little action and light suspense (a..Show More »nd thankfully did not dig too deeply into the psyche of a serial killer). The story line lacked originality to the point one could call it cliché. The author had satisfactory writing mechanics, but was not able to conceive an intriguing plot or develop compelling characters. The reader's near monotone emphasized the book's tame plot, causing me to skip an hour ahead two times. I didn't feel deprived.
